Hourglass cukes

Hampton, GA(Zone 7b)

About half of my cucumbers are smaller in the middle than on the ends. And are bent. Has anyone had this problem? Here is a picture. Thanks in advance.

Probably the result of uneven watering. Your dry spell is in the middle of the cuke.

Ellicott City, MD(Zone 7a)

As long as your cukes taste good and are not bitter, that the most important thing! Actually, I think they look interesting.

That's very interesting.....that you can see the dry spell. They have only gotten rain water, so that explains it. They do look interesting...kind of like crook neck squash! Thanks for your help.
